Why fitted is best
Torso fitting is better for backpacks because it allows the weight of the backpack to be more evenly distributed across the body. This can help to prevent strain on the shoulders and back, which can be a common problem with camera bags because they are not properly fitted. Additionally, torso fitting can help to improve stability and balance when carrying a backpack, which can be especially important when traveling over rough terrain or when carrying a heavy load. Overall, torso fitting can help to make carrying a backpack more comfortable and efficient.
Pack Sizing & Fitting Guide
FITTING BASED ON HEIGHT
While torso fitting is best, height works 86% of the time.
+ If you are 5’8 / 1.7m or below, the medium size pack typically fits best.
+ If you are taller than 5’11/1.8m the large size pack typically fits best.

Torso length provides the most accurate measurement for backpack fitting.
+ If your torso length is shorter than 18" / 45.5cm, the medium size pack typically fits best.
+ If your torso length is longer than 18"/45.5cm the large size pack typically fits best.

HOW TO MEASURE
1. Cut a piece of string 18"/45.5cm
2. Hold the top to your C7 vertebrae and drop the bottom end.
3. Now feel all the way down to where string ends. It will fall either above or below your Iliac Center (essentially your love handles and where you rest your hands when you are putting your hands on your hips).
PS: If the string goes past your love handles, that means your torso is shorter than 18" = medium size pack. If the string ends before
your love handles, that means your torso longer than 18" = large size pack.
Go shorter if in doubt, if the pack is too tall fitting will be a challenge and the weight will not distribute properly.
The tipping point between sizes (for both the Athlete and the Adventure Pack) is an 18"/45.5cm torso length.
